Hi i have a application folder called /blogengine/
and all works fine, but want it to look like blog.mysite.co.uk

Tring to use this in web.config file but does not seem to make a diffecence, do i need to put it both root config and folder config (if not which one its in the root one at the moment)

     <rule name="blogDir" enabled="true">
          <match url="(.*)" />
          <conditions logicalGrouping="MatchAny">
            <add input="{HTTP_HOST}" pattern="^blog.mysite\.co\.uk$" />
          </conditions>
          <action type="Rewrite" url="\blogengine\{R:0}" />
        </rule>

Open in new window


Everyone seems to say about different ways to do this like take ot the / and use {R:1} so also tried this and lots of others but now joy just dont get how they work so dont know what I am doing wrong.

<rule name="Rewrite blog-domain to blogengine" enabled="true">
            <match url="(.*)$" />
            <conditions>
              <add input="{HTTP_HOST}" pattern="^blog.mysite.co.uk$" />
            </conditions>
            <action type="Rewrite" url="\blogengine\{R:1}" />
          </rule>

Open in new window


or

<rule name="Rewrite sub-domain to dir" enabled="true">
          <match url="^(.*)$" />
          <conditions>
             <add input="{HTTP_HOST}" pattern="^blog\.mysite\.co\.uk$" />
          </conditions>
          <action type="Rewrite" url="blogengine/{R:1}" />
       </rule>

Open in new window



Please tell me what I am doing wrong

Try this in the root.
<rule name="Rewrite sub-domain to dir" enabled="true">
          <match url="(.*)" />
          <conditions>
             <add input="{HTTP_HOST}" pattern="^blog\.mysite\.co\.uk$" />
          </conditions>
          <action type="Rewrite" url="/blogengine/{R:1}" />
       </rule>

no still does not work, its like its not there i just get the normal home page on the root

but if i use
 <rule name="Rewrite sub-domain to dir" enabled="true">
          <match url="(.*)" />
          <conditions>
            <add input="{HTTP_HOST}" pattern="http://blog.mysite.co.uk$" />
          </conditions>
          <action type="Rewrite" url="http://www.mysite.co.uk/blogengine/{R:1}" />
        </rule>

I get the root home page without any images or css. Is there a setting i have to turn on first?

try adding appendQueryString="true", i.e. <action type="Rewrite" url="http://www.mysite.co.uk/blogengine/{R:1}" appendQueryString="true" />

        </rule>
        <rule name="BlogRewrite">
             <match url="blogengine/(.*)" negate="true" />
                     <conditions>
                         <add input="{HTTP_HOST}" pattern="www.mysite.co.uk" />
